Why Conor McGregor can beat Floyd MayeatherJr on a boxing rematch?

Published

on

By Ponciano Melo – In 2017, Conor McGregor and Floyd Mayweather Jr. fought in a high-profile crossover superfight. The bout was rightly called ‘the money fight’ as it ended up getting the second highest pay-per-view buys in the history of boxing.

Mayweather said he would retire from professional boxing right after his fight with ‘The Notorious’. He subsequently went on to participate in two exhibition bouts to make his comeback to the ring. One of them was his recent exhibition showdown with Logan Paul.

The American boxer has made a lot of money from his exhibition battles. Mayweather’s next fight might be against Conor McGregor if he wants to stay on this route.

Be that as it may, it very well may be addressed whether confronting the Irishman again would be a decent choice for ‘Cash’ Mayweather’s undefeated streak. ‘Infamous’ has taken in a ton from his past battle. Subsequently, his odds of crushing ‘Cash’ in a fight have expanded. Here are 4 reasons why Conor McGregor can overcome Floyd Mayweather:

#4 McGregor’s improved cardio and endurance

In McGregor’s previous loss to Mayweather, his lack of cardio played a major role. The referee had to stop the fight in the tenth round as McGregor failed to defend himself from Mayweather’s punches. McGregor was so gassed out that he could not keep his guard up, let alone throw counter-punches.

McGregor failed to defeat Dustin Poirier in their second fight at UFC 257 earlier this year in January. In this fight, he fell short of both cardio and endurance against a dangerous striker in Dustin Poirier.

Ever since his loss to Poirier, McGregor has been training aggressively to improve his cardio and endurance. To make this more evident, the Irishman posted stories on his social media while training in Dubai earlier in April.

#3 Better read on Floyd’s boxing

In the first few rounds of his previous fight with Mayweather, the Irishman landed some solid shots that shook Mayweather. McGregor failed to land them consistently as his cardio and endurance gave out.

#2 McGregor’s change of stance

Until his loss to Khabib ‘the eagle’ Nurmagomedov at UFC 229, McGregor used to have a stance where his guard wasn’t held too high and his body would be in a line facing the opponent. This leaves his head open to take hits without allowing McGregor to block strikes in time.

Both Floyd Mayweather and KhabibNurmagomedov took advantage of this low guard in their respective fights with McGregor. Mayweather landed several punches on the Irishman’s head, while Khabib successfully landed one punch that knocked McGregor down.

#1 Mayweather is getting older

The more this fight gets delayed, the bigger the disadvantage Mayweather is at against McGregor. The Irishman is a tad bit above his prime fighting age but Mayweather is way past it at the age of 44.

Conor McGregor still has the ability and room to improve his strength, speed and stamina, whereas Mayweather’s abilities for both are diminishing.

Pacquiao impressive in training, knocking down sparring partners

“It was the old Manny Pacquiao from 10 years ago.”
This is how Freddie Roach described the performance of the 42-year old Manny
Pacquiao on the sparring session.
Roach, who earlier said was offering money to sparring partners they hired to
knockdown Pacquiao received a reverse card as it was the eight-division world
champion who went punishing his opponents.
With his age and the two-year absence in the ring, Pacquiao could have been shaking
off the rust and with doubts but it is clearly the opposing with weeks away before he
faces the unified welterweight champion Errol Spence Jr.
“He had probably his best sparring yesterday, we went ten rounds and he got two
knockdowns. It was the old Manny Pacquiao from 10 years ago,” said Roach in an open
workout.
Dissecting the words of Roach, a decade ago was the prime Pacquiao who was on a
rampage every time he entered the ring. Will he display old prime self against the prime
Spence?
This kind of development is surely adding to the hype of the fight that will see action

Pacquiao congratulates Paalam, salutes Marcial on a podium finish

On the day that two Filipino boxers saw action in the semi-final of men’s boxing in the
Olympic Games Tokyo 2020, the Philippines got a 1-1 result.
Carlo Paalam, the most surprising by far, is off for a gold medal match after beating his
opponent via unanimous decision in the men’s flyweight while Manny Pacquiao’s
protégé Eumir Marcial suffered a close defeat over his Ukrainian foe via split decision to
settle for an Olympic bronze medal.
Despite not owning two wins in a day, Pacquiao made sure to commend both boxers on
their job well done.
“Fight for Gold, Carlo Paalam! We are rooting for you. Thank you, Eumir Marcial for
giving your best! Your Olympic effort was solid gold.”
“The two of you make us very proud!” He wrote on his official Twitter account.
Marcial was heartbroken after the fight but he vows to come back stronger and will take
the lessons from his defeat. Meanwhile, Paalam is one to be proud for himself as he at
only 23-year old is on the finals fighting for a gold medal for the Philippines.
Whether or not he will get the second gold, one thing is for sure, both Paalam and
Marcial have a bright future ahead of them in the sports of boxing.

Pacquiao: “Boxing is my passion, I want to fight the best”

For those who are still questioning whether Manny Pacquiao should continue fighting
with his age already beyond 40, he answered it plain and simple.
Boxing is his passion and that passion remains alive that’s why he is fighting. It’s not
about the money, it’s about him enjoying himself while at the same time bringing glory to
his home country, the Philippines.
“Hard work is the most difficult thing in boxing,” the eight-division world champion said
on his Instagram video.
“I’m so honoured and thankful for the Filipino people for always being there and
cheering and supporting me. This is where I get inspiration from your support and
prayers.”
He is only weeks away from his ring return to challenge the belts of the undefeated
unified welterweight champion Errol Spence.
“God is good all the time. Always protecting me, giving me strength and keeping me
safe.”
“Boxing is my passion, I want to fight the best. It means a lot to win this fight and it’s
very important that I can bring another honour to my country.”
